"Understanding interactive surfaces and spaces in everyday life";
Keynote Lecture: ISS2017, Brighton, UK; 2017-10-20.

English abstract:
Interactive Surfaces and Spaces increasingly pervade our everyday life, appearing in various sizes, shapes, and application contexts, offering a rich variety of ways to interact". Actually getting technologies used in everyday life though requires sensitivities to a range of other factors beyond the technology itself. Drawing on years of research in CSCW and related areas, this talk will explore how playing at the intersection of social and computing sciences can inform how we conceptualise, design and deploy new ISS technologies in everyday life. The discussions will touch on the importance of social practices through which technologies come to be incorporated into everyday life, the need to be critically reflective about the values entailed in our technology designs, and the potential of `goodŽ technologies to contribute to health, well being and human flourishing.
